Mexico’s wheat production in Marketing Year (MY) 2021/22 is revised downward, based on more complete figures from Mexico's Secretariat of Agriculture and Rural Development (SADER). The projected corn production for MY 2020/21 was increased slightly to 27.2 million metric tons (MMT). The sorghum production estimate for MY 2020/21 has been revised downward, reflecting the severe drought that has affected the main producing areas. The rice production estimate for MY 2020/21 (October to September) was revised slightly upward to 306,000 MT (rough production), which is equivalent to 210,000 MT of milled rice.
